Warrant Records Are Available to Everyone, But Are They Really Public Records?

Warrant records are a public record that is accessible to all. They show any violations or crimes that have been committed by a person, either minor or major. In the past, these records were maintained in the county seat or at the courthouse of the county where the crime had taken place. This is because they then had a seal from the county as to what was being reported. Today, however, warrant records are now available on the Internet and you can find them quickly.

Before the availability of Internet records, anyone that wanted to obtain warrants would have to go to the courthouse and fill out applications stating why they needed the information in the first place. It usually took many months to get the applications approved and the documents sent back to the court. This was very time consuming and the applications could be denied at any time by the courts. Also, if you were denied you would have to appeal the decision and it could take even longer to get the appeal approved. In addition, the searches for these records would cost hundreds of dollars. With the availability of these records, people who are looking for information about someone’s record have more options available.

Warrant records are now available online for the public to access. Anyone who has access to the Internet can use search engines such as Google to find any record they want. There are millions of records on the Internet and people searching for them have many reasons. Some people want to check up on someone that is living in another state to find out if there have been any warrants issued against them. Others may want to know if a family member is in danger of running away and starting a new life somewhere else. Yet others may be simply curious about the warrant records of a particular person and want to find out whether there are any warrants out for their arrest.

The good news about all of this is that you don’t have to pay a fee to access these public records. If you’re going to use a search engine, be sure to only use one that gives you the best information for the price you’re paying. There is plenty of free information available to you online, but it tends to be very limited and not as up to date as what you’ll pay for. These records are considered public information so they are made available to everyone. This means anyone from the local sheriff’s office to FBI agents and even the press has access to these records. It’s not considered a private record and is open to anyone who uses the public information to perform a search.

The downside of all of this is that there is no way to check to see if the person you’re looking up actually has a criminal record. You can’t do a county public records search to see if the person has a past record of drug use, or to see if they have ever been arrested for a crime. You also can’t do a reverse cell phone lookup to find out who owns a particular cell phone number or look up an address to find a person’s current address. There are ways around this, however. You can access these public records and run searches on people, but you will need to pay a small fee for the information.

If you’ve never had to look up a person’s warrant records then you might want to consider a service that will let you perform one of these searches on their site. While there is no free service available, a good quality service should let you access the necessary information for a nominal fee. The benefits of using a professional database instead of just trying to find the records yourself is that these professional services will have all of the details you need, including the person’s full name, their case type, the date the warrant was issued, the violations, and any additional information the records may contain. And since many times these records are sealed under certain circumstances, it’s almost impossible to get them otherwise.
